Prayer is not simply a desperation heave into the end zone as time expires. It’s about building a relationship and making us grow.
We rarely make progress in anything without goals. Why should spiritual growth be different?
The tougher things in this series – the fear of the Lord, the fact of hell, and the freedom of obedience – make sense only because God loves us.
There is a kind of freedom in doing whatever you want, but it usually ends in slavery. Then there is the freedom of obedience.
We can”t call Jesus our Lord and ignore the harder things he said. And he did indeed say some hard things about eternal punishment.
We begin a new series today on some of the fundamentals of our faith. We begin with the oft-neglected but very beneficial fear of the Lord.
Guest speaker David Schaffer talks about how God can bring us back to life even our ‘bones’ or our souls seem a little too dry.
